PlayStation Plus games for August include a new release for PS4 and PS5

August is right around the corner, and that means a new batch of PlayStation Plus games is inbound. Sony today revealed what August's PlayStation Plus games are, and once again, we're going to see a game debut on the service. As opposed to previous months, where there has usually been one game that's exclusive to PS5 in each batch of PS Plus games, in August all games will be available for PS4 users to download as well.

Sony today gave us an update on just how well the PlayStation 5 is selling, and as it turns out, the console is officially the best-selling PlayStation system in Sony's history.

Sony ZV-E10 ILC camera takes ZV-1 to a new level with E-mount lenses

The Sony ZV-E10 was revealed this week with abilities that eclipse the company's otherwise most impressive "creator-centric" cameras designed for video creators and vloggers. The camera works with a 24.2-megapixel APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processing engine inside, ready to connect to all manner of lenses from the get-go. The features on this Sony ZV-E10 camera will be familiar to those users that've already handled the Sony ZV-1, but here the machine can expand in a wide array of ways with Sony E-mount lenses aplenty.

Ratchet & Clank’s dimension hopping has landed them in Fall Guys

Fall Guys has had no lack of guest characters appear as costumes in the game.

The costumes are arriving later this month, but you'll need more than just crowns to unlock them.

Xperia 1 III Android update clarification isn’t reassuring

Xperia 1 III Android update clarification isn’t reassuring

Sony's latest high-end Xperia flagship made headlines a few days ago and not in a good way. A customer representative revealed what may have been the most disappointing aspect of the Xperia 1 III, and it isn't about its hardware. Sony is neither the best nor the worst when it comes to software updates, but its alleged plans for its latest flagship is probably one of the least encouraging ones we've heard in recent years. The company has now reportedly tried to clarify that commitment but its statement still leaves some questions unanswered.

Sony is taking a geeky gamble that soundbars aren’t enough any more

Sony is taking a geeky gamble that soundbars aren’t enough any more

It's fair to say that soundbars upended the home theater market. While their early iterations may have struggled to match the audio performance of a room full of individual speakers, advances in hardware and processing algorithms have made it possible to have effective surround sound from a single source in the room. Suddenly, you didn't need a big amp and seven or more different boxes - all trailing wires - to get that pseudo-theater effect.

Sony HT-A9 and HT-A7000 take two very different routes to home theater

Sony is looking to upend home theater audio, with a new HT-A7000 soundbar along with the more unusual Sony HT-A9 home theater system. While the HT-A7000 replaces the old HT-ST5000 with a familiar form-factor and niceties like Dolby Atmos, the HT-A9 takes a different route, with four speakers that use smart auto-optimization so that you can place them anywhere in the room.

Xperia 1 III premium flagship might get only one Android upgrade

For those following the smartphone market for almost a decade now, it's not unusual to hear Sony's smartphones getting price tags considerably higher than their competitors. At the same time, the company has been one of the very few among its peers that kept its doors open to Android ROM developers and modders. This paints a rather confusing picture of Sony's smartphone business, and this latest revelation doesn't help improve that image. According to its Dutch office, its latest Xperia 1 III high-end flagship will get only two years of monthly security fixes and one major Android update.
